Majblomman 2009 – time to give

.

.majblomma

.

If you have noticed, as the lovely Tina at the English Muse did, the paper flower pin in my sidebar and wonder what it is, I can tell you that it is this years Mayflower pin that is being sold by children in Sweden, every year in the spring and only for two weeks, with the aim to improve the situation for children and to fight child poverty. I think this is such a beautiful tradition and of course, I was selling “majblommor” by myself as a kid.

As I’m too old nowadays for selling the mayflowers I buy a lot of the pins instead!
Actually I bought several mayflowers yesterday as a give away to you, my lovely readers, so leave me a comment if you want one and Iwill send a beautiful pink mayflower to 15 random readers from the comment list.

    Hej
    Jag hoppas att du har kvar en majblomma de är så underbart fina och jag gillar årets med de rosa färgerna. Min pappa har nästan alla majblommor från kan det har varit 1907 den första såldes. De äldre är nästan finare än de nya men fina är de alla.

    I’m hoping to be random enough to receive such a nice, charitable idea! I’ve seen similar in England, but can’t remember for what I gave a pound!

    These are so charming, and I love the evolution of flower design… And your blog is wonderful… always a source of beauty and inspiration. What are you studying? I’m about to graduate too, and sympathize completely with your desire to sleep for ages!

    What a simple and beautiful way to raise awareness and aid – I love the idea of getting children involved too, so often as a child you feel like you can’t do anything to change the world. We don’t really have anything similar in the US that I can think of… There’s selling girl scout cookies, but that’s not for charity…

    I’d like a flower!

    I really like your blog and the way you compose the different pictures!!
    by the way, you have a similar flower in your blog label, does it refer to the mayflower project?
